Hvac contractor handy manCongratulations! You’ve just bought a brand new HVAC system! It’s state-of-the-art and energy-efficient – everything you need for your Baldwin County home. Now all you need is someone to install it. Making sure your system is installed properly is essential. So how do you ensure the technician you hire is qualified to do the job? Hire one who has been certified by North American Technician Excellence (NATE).

Benefits of Using a NATE-Certified Technician

NATE is an organization that sets rigorous qualification standards specifically for HVAC and refrigeration technicians. They test those technicians on the knowledge they need in their field and provide certification to show that the technicians meet those standards and qualifications.

NATE certification is a voluntary process for HVAC professionals. There currently is no mandatory certification for HVAC technicians in the U.S., and thus no guarantee of the qualifications of the technician working on your home’s heating or cooling system. In fact, nearly half of the HVAC system installations in the U.S. are performed incorrectly, leading to higher utility bills and more frequent service calls, and ultimately making HVAC systems wear out more quickly. This is why it’s important to insist on getting the best, most qualified technicians out there.

Proper installation of your HVAC system is just one of the benefits of using a NATE-certified technician. Other benefits include thorough annual maintenance, leading to lower utility bills and a longer lifespan for your system, as well as fewer service calls in the future. This provides simple peace of mind, knowing that your HVAC system is in the very best hands. If you want to ensure that you’re getting the best in the business, ask your HVAC company if they use NATE-certified technicians before having them work on your system.
